Residents on well systems are being advised to conserve water as eastern Ontario enters a severe drought.

Water levels area so low that there are fears some wells could run dry.

The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority says not enough rain is in the forecast to make up for the current shortfall, and levels in rivers and lakes are expected to continue to drop.
